I meant to share Tassy's Book Week costume weeks ago!
These days she likes to plan her costume before there's any mention of book week at school. Cos we don't get much notice. So she's been talking about her book week costume for months. She decided on Alice in Wonderland. For a few reasons - we read the book a year or two ago, I like her to use things we already have at home for her costume, and I insist on the character actually being from a book. Gee I sound bossy don't I. It just annoys me when I see princesses and superheroes at book week.
So we picked a white top, a blue dress and I made an apron using some calico from my stash. Tassy stripped a rabbit that my mum had made about 20 years ago, and made him a felt vest and felt pocket watch. She made them all herself and I was pretty impressed!
